This is an excellent film, especially under the circumstances.

Actually, there IS an earlier film, from the 12/18/65 Muir Beach acid test; unfortunately I don't think it's on youtube.
This is a snippet which may be from that - nice band closeups, plus a shot of the koolaid barrel getting spiked!

On the 3/19/66 ( my birthday , I turned 9 !) film do you know where the "Viola Lee" comes from, and is it form this early ? Great early Dead footage !

The Viola Lee is from 12/1/66. Paradoxically, it's probably a better accompaniment than the actual 3/19/66 Viola Lee, which is rather lame in comparison...granted, they'd just started playing it in January.

I thought it soumded a little too "developed' for the date , but I am glad to see this footage . I posted the 65 on on my FB. Note : my commet is aimed at my generally non Dead , Rock oriented friends .
Musta been drinking that Koolaide... Ancient history time . The newly Grateful Dead, formerly the Warlocks, doing Slim Harpo"s (via the Rolling Stones) "King Bee" . Note at 0:51 more "koolaide" being added to the barrel . 12/18/65 ! Before "Revolver", "Blonde on Blonde","Aftermath", and 9 months before the first Jefferson Airplane Album, and 15 months before thei first album .

Any idea where to get the 12/18/65 footage?

Ken Kesey's site sells the video:

(It's "The Acid Test," naturally. Note that it also features "Jerry sweeping up after the show"...)

Have you invested in this or any of the other videos? I've been tempted to pick a few up for quite a few years. Maybe now's the time...

Anybody have a review on these DVDs?

I do not have the video - I should get it, though. Strange it's not on youtube. There's a description in the Taping Compendium. The 1/8/66 show is from the video soundtrack.
